Brooklyn, New Yo...
I used Zahra’s Retro Top pattern (thank you Zahra!!!) This is the first time i sewed a shirt before, and i think it turned out pretty good! But sorry, i can’t show the back because it’s a little “off”. Somehow, i ended up with tons of fabric in the back (at the top, near the neck) and just had to chop chop to make it work.
I bought this fabric with the intention to sew a throw pillow with it, but decided it was kinda fab for a shirt. It’s probably a little heavy for this pattern, but works nonetheless.
Zahra, Zahra, Zahra!
